the preacher and the hurricane

I mentioned a while back that we have a new preacher.

His first official Sunday to preach was August 31st. And in true Texas fashion we welcomed him and his family in with a mandatory hurricane evacuation.

I felt so sorry for them. They moved from Arkansas to Texas. Were here only a few short weeks and had to leave. Temporarily of course.

So yesterday Bro. Phil (His title is Dr. Phil but I don't want anyone thinking the man who talks about being like a shoe string with out a shoe is our new preacher) preached his first sermon at our church.

And I missed it! For no other reason than complete exhaustion. I stayed up late waiting for Hubs to come in from the football game. He didn't get home until almost 2 AM.

So now I have to wait until this coming Sunday. And I still might not get to hear him.

Thanks to... Hurricane Ike

Welcome to Texas Bro. Phil. Where we do everything bigger and better. Including hurricanes!

I understand exhaustion and certainly Bro Phil does too. Hope you are safe and sound with this next storm go around!

Now this is what I call "breaking him in". If he can handle all this....he's a keeper!

Congratulations! Let the ministering begin.

Let's just hope that Ike is not as bad as they say it will be. As of right now, it looks like it's headed more towards ya'll than us here in Louisiana. We'll see.
